Double fisted!

Jace's brother Derek and his baby boy Eric and Jace's parents

With their Grandma

Someone doesn't want to smile...

Easton had his 1 year check up today he was 50% on weight and 58% on height, and we found out the poor guy had a double ear infection..not only that (mom of the year over here) he got his first farmers tan/burn. Jace was helping lay sod in a friends back yard and they were longer than they thought, I had to go to work so I dropped Easton off and he hung out with the boys in his stroller, in direct sunlight. I am hoping we will spend plenty of time in the sun with the sweet kiddie pool he got for his birthday, well slicked with sunscreen though! We spent Easter at the Oliverson's and Easton enjoyed his first easter egg hunt. I was so proud of him, he totally grasped the concept and would pick the eggs up and put them in his bag. What a smartie pants!

Our little slugger just finished his rookie year

Here it is, with all its glory...Easton's first birthday party! The wind blew, the cupcakes looked and tasted awful but all in all we had a fun time, and enjoyed the company of all who were able to attend. Since Easton's baseball birthday cake hit the deck, my best friend Brooke ran to the store and picked up a back up. He didn't really like all the attention of all his cousins watching him so I told the kids to dig in the cupcakes and Easton went to town on his cake. Later on he was playing on the ground (yes, the dang kid still wont walk) and my sister in law Angie put the cake down for Easton, and he really started to dig in.

The birthday shirt my mom helped me make way back in February.

The big guys birthday invitation. It will be hard to top this!

If you live in Cedar don't use Cravings for cupcakes, they looked and tasted awful..luckily I had previously made cupcake wrappers and toppers which made them look a lot better than if they were by themselves. I was pretty sad!

The "watch me grow banner." This was tons of work, but it will make a cute decoration for his room now.

Cake pops, SO YUMMY, so time consuming...but they turned out cute!

These pictures are mostly for my side of the family, cause they weren't able to make it all the way from Seattle, Easton definitley missed you guys but we can't wait to see you this summer!

Easton wont remember any of this, but Mom will and thats what matters...he can go back and look at pictures when he is older and be grateful than. Until than....lets hope Easton jumps on the bandwagon soon and starts to walk :) The kid is a tank to haul around!
